Diagnostic Center North: Strategies for Effective Consultation within the School Setting

The focus of this training will be on how to provide effective consultation to teachers within the school setting. It is often difficult to find ways to provide feedback, recommendations and support for busy and stressed teachers. Honing your consultation skills is an art and can result in more collaborative and fruitful consultative relationships with the school staff that need support. Evidence-based interventions for consultation will be reviewed. There will be ample time for discussion and problem-solving related to consultation barriers within the school setting.

Participants will:
  • Learn about evidence-based interventions for consultation
  • Explore simple, straightforward methods for providing consultation
  • Reflect on their consultative approach and discuss alternative approaches
  • A Certificate of Completion is available for virtual training, in-person training, Special Training Events, and Technical Assistance Projects. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities.
